EtcetEraThread Vice News: Brexit has become such a dumpster fire that it has killed every other major EU secessionist movement
Reason User warned: inflammatory accusation
I’m not sure if this is you or not (I certainly hope not, because fucking yikes at that tweet), but that is nonetheless the exact same sort of dangerous and terrible islamophobia that largely fueled the Leave vote. As was posted earlier in the thread, Leave was overwhelmingly about immigration fears, which is a smoothed over way of saying it was almost completely about racism and fear of Islam. To me, hearing Leave be justified by a desire for general independence sounds an awful lot like moderate Confederate-sympathizers trying to argue that southern US state’s seceded because of general States’ Rights (it wasn’t - it was slavery).
